  • Super long beach, very nice white sand. It's like two beaches in one, at low tide you can walk 200 yards to the ocean, at high tide, it leaves just a skinny strip of white sand. Parking costs money but it's worth spending a few hours here.
  • gr8 for sun rises. To find a parking lot may be pain, just look around or being patient.
  • Beautiful beach, crowded during high tide but always room regardless - worth the visit
  • 20$ parking. But free 30 min stays to see the view and go. Water is too cold for swimming but wadding is fun
  • This is a beautiful beach even during the colder months of the year! I visited on a sunny but chilly October afternoon and the place was pretty much empty - you'll have the beach all to yourself and you can peacefully stroll along the shore, enjoying the white sand and the beauty of the Atlantic merging with the sky above!
